New member from Adelaide

  • Hi All, I took the leap and bought MSFS on Steam the other day and so far have also bought from ORBX Landmarks Adelaide, Parafield Airport, Sydney CBD, Landmarks Brisbane and also Auckland as well as the NZ mesh. Anyway, I come from other sims and am trying to work out the directory structure with this new one. My other flight sims often have a sim directory in the documents folder where you can put your add ons such as aircraft and 3rd part scenery. Could someone please point me in the right direction. :)

  • Easiest way for a newbie (or an oldbie, come to that) is to download and use one of the addon managers available on the website.

    These (in no particular order) include and

    My personal preference is the second one, but although it is veery versatile, it has a fairly steep learning curve (it's still much easier than managing potentially hundreds of addons manually).

    Good luck, and keep in touch.

  • Thanks for the responses guys. I will continue to fiddle about with John's addon managers and get used to this program for a few weeks however, before I venture online. Have a great Christmas.
